Thanks Maik.
I will give it a try with the metadata reading enabled and see if it is
Rename after the import is very easy too though.

This is an old problem (https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=387004). You
can enable reading the metadata in the import tool under the digiKam->
Camera-> Behavior. However, then the reading of the images from the 
Camera-> camera is
much slower. Better to rename the files after the import.
